Hello, to all, Ι know that with this writing I will not be very likeable in here, but still, it is my need to write it, and it is my need to meet other photographers, and artists that are in OS, and I have not found yet.
This morning I have wrote this comment on our new editors' blog, and I want your thinkings on this issue:
"Jacob, goodmorning from Greece, I have never sent a ΡΜ to you, and I will never will, and I am writing this here, so as all members of OS to read. I am here, after reading the 'What is OS'' in the home index. And OS is ..
"About Open Salon
Open Salon is a publishing platform with a built-in audience. It was developed for writers, photographers and artists of any stripe in need of a smart home for their work (and not one of those giant, anonymous blog networks), and who are hoping to be rewarded for it..."
I am a photographer, trying to find my way into the gallery world, and I am here to have as much creative criticism I can, but also to make friends, and learn to communicate and write in another language.
I know that in the cover, there is sometimes the work of only a few photographers in here as EΡ's, but the why I am writing to you is first to inform you that here in OS by the members of OS we have the GALLERY CHALLENGE, where a theme issue is given and we all can have our work seen. (I recently learned that in Wordρress there are weekly image challenges,as you can check.)
Maybe, a challenge like this, could be ''adoρted'' by you, and be an OS challenge tradition.
And the second reason that I am writing this, for once again, is because I want to draw your attention to the artists in here, and this attention is not demonstrated in the OC or in the cover. Ρlease, do not consider this, as anything of criticism, or nothing else, but my true interest, to be in a challenging environment, where art works and artists, can have their smart home, as well and in the same way, as ρersonal stories, find their way.
Where are the artists and photographers in the cover of todays OS, I am wondering, only reading, what OS is...""
I am asking all of you for your opinion, cause I feel that here in OS the artists and photographers, are slowly casted out of their smart home (to the definition of OS), and their place is being taken by diary writing, which no one knows, if they are actually true, or fiction. We artists, are here with our name and work, links and sites, and we try to build our work, through your creative criticism, which is what OS was made for, as described in the OS index.
I mean, I surely do not want to be and write my tears, only to have an audience. Why OS is forcing me by these OC and the cover selections, to do so, and is this fair to our abilities and qualities. ?
This is my asking, and your opinions in the issue, will be very helpful to me, and maybe to others who care.
Τhank you for your time and interest,
